thunar cannot find trash folder

when i delete a file, thunar says:

"Thunar: unable to find out or create trash dir"

Why is Thunar unable to create the Trash dir ? Or where can I create one with mkdir ?

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

yes, I've read the Xfce wiki page on wiki.archlinux.org and I didn't find a solution for this "trash dir" error

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

I didn't knew there was a thunar page... but it says something about the "trash issue", wich occurs if "gvfs" is not installed, but I've already installed it and thunar can't create the trash folder, i think trash is in ~ (home dir), but thunar should have permissions to create it

I think this might be down to how you start your window manager. Which window manager do you use and how do you start it?


You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

Where are the files you want to delete - on a remote location https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 96#p812196 ? What filesystem is it?

As I said in your other "thunar thread", pay attention to how you start your DE / WM. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 3#p1005353

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

You need to install gvfs.
pacman -S gvfs should fix it for you.
If not, then start up your window manager using
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch <your wm>

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

When using Thunar, you've got to be the owner of a partition to use the trash. No matter if you have full permissions, if you're not the owner, you can't use it. It seems the only exception is your home directory on system partition.
I guess the partition you're trying to delete from is owned by root, isn't it? Try changing that in /etc/fstab.

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

You don't need gvfs.
Make a directory in the root of the NTFS drive with the name  .Trash-[your user id number].  Typically, that would be '.Trash-1000'  but you can type 'id' in a terminal to check.
In the terminal:  sudo chown -R [your user name]:users  .Trash-[your user id number] 
par example:

mkdir .Trash-1000
sudo chown -R admin:users .Trash-1000

And that's what workeed for me

Re: thunar cannot find trash folder

Step 1:open thunar as root
Step 2:go to home/.local/share
Step 3:change permissions on Thrash folder (and all folders inside,of course)
